The equipment I bought when it was new is now described as "vintage". :eek:

This has been the worst part about getting back into photography after a 25 year hiatus.

No, that's the best aspect of :43:, being able to use old (vintage) equipment, I knew I was old before taking up the :43: format :biggrin:, and it's technology I hopefully understand and feel comfortable with :smile:

you know you're getting old when the young woman at the drive-thru window insists on giving you the senior discount :)

You know you are getting old when people hold the door for you at stores and call you sir. I'm 54.

I have a copy somewhere of the Whole Earth Catalog.

Plus many of the Foxfire books - Foxfire (magazine) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Handy for those of you who need to know how to dress a hog ...

I'm 51 and rarely feel old, but the first time I remember feeling old was when I was 22 - I was very interested in a 19 year old girl and after chatting her up for a while realized she had never heard of Jimi Hendrix. This was in 1981 - how could anyone in that day and age never have heard of Jimi Hendrix? I mean, REALLY? Its only gotten worse since...

But photography never makes me feel old.

Barrie, you are hereby excused for not knowing about "Google in paperback".:thumbup:

Narnian, why am I not surprised to see that Firefox book?:biggrin:

Since we're stating ages, I'm a mere 56.:drinks:

Bill, I think you may win the elder statesman of mu-43 award!:friends:

Everyone's making this oldies thread a good one - from being "sir'd" to Jim Hendrix!
